Hillsborough deputies want public's help in identifying robber

APOLLO BEACH — Deputies are working to identify a man they say walked into two businesses with a shotgun and robbed them Saturday morning.

The suspect is described as being 18 to 30, 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-6, 170 to 180 pounds, white or Hispanic, with a bald head, stocky build, a tattoo of a cross on his chest and multiple tattoos on his arms. During the robberies, he was wearing blue jeans, no shirt and white athletic shoes.

Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies said the man walked in to the Radiant convenience store at 6190 U.S. 41 S at 3:48 a.m. Saturday and demanded money. Investigators believe he drove a silver or gray Ford F-150 pickup with four doors and black rims.
